ARE WEEKENDS A CHANCE FOR “CHEAT DAYS” OR AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAXIMIZE YOUR HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?
Many of us who are trying to reach nutrition, fitness, or general health goals work really hard to stay on track during the week or for a set period of time, but like to incorporate “cheat days” to make us feel a little less deprived while not feeling guilty for treating ourselves. Many times we choose the weekends to be our cheat days as these are the days where we want the opportunity to relax, be a little less stressed and regimented and have a little bit of fun.
This being said, for many of us, the weekends are when we have the most flexibility to choose what we want to do with our time rather than trying to squeeze everything in to a busy schedule. If you are looking to truly succeed though, these cheat days can many times lead to lack of results, or going back to where we started. What if, instead of dieting, we develop an overall healthy lifestyle without cheat days? This sounds crazy right? Well what if I told you promoting an overall healthy lifestyle allows you to incorporate to foods you enjoy most in to your eating plan so you don’t feel deprived and don’t need a cheat day?
